UFC on FOX 15 Machida vs Rockhold

Post by Primetyme199 » Mon Apr 20, 2015 11:38 am


Before we go any further, we should note that the New Jersey Athletic Commission doesn’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official. However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights. So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event, or Luke Rockhold and Jacare Souza, who haven’t had many or any reported UFC purses).

Attendance: 13,306
Gate: $1,200,000
